What does Autotheism mean? They said this would be another concept album so the title should give away the concept.

Should be titled "Unnecessary Wanking."

Or "We Will Name This Album Something Overtly Stupid In Hopes That Our Fans Will Read Too Far Into It."

Sweet, I love the Faceless. This should be good.

"What does Autotheism mean?"

Well it probably is talking about masses of people undeniably believing in God and being "Auto" Theists without taking time to form their own beliefs and taking what their parents and other people feed them.

In other words, this album will probs be a stab at religion.

Meshuggah is more talented than the faceless.

but

Meshuggah is overrated on Sputnik and The Faceless is a bit underrated/overly hated on.

They both suffer from the whole talent-not-translating-fully-into-good-songs problem.

Meshuggah fans are a lot like Tool fans - they think their band's music is soo much deeper and awesome than it actually is (I do like both bands to a small extent though before you fully napalm me).

cuz fast riffs = good. keene can't do a sol niger within for his life even if he wanted to.

"Meshuggah is overrated on Sputnik "

you're welcome DEI or DIE. and faceless are not underrated they're just old news and still suck.

"Meshuggah fans are a lot like Tool fans"

Tool fans throw shit at opening bands if they don't like them.

So, do you think their next song will be played on an eight string guitar using polymeters with lyrics about reality featuring a tapping or legato guitar solo and riffs mostly centered around the lowest note on their guitar?

(I actually enjoy Meshuggah)

planetary duality was actually pretty decent for this kind of stuff. from their album covers you'd think they were some shitty "progressive" djent band but they're really just tech death. not really my thing tbh but they're pretty good at what they do.

Almost every band uses either straight up keyboards or VST plugins for orchestration rather than real instruments.

I don't care if this album is short as long as it's awesome, I have a short attention span anyways. Probably will be their worst full-length but then again it has Evan Brewer soooooooooooo omgz
